Redskins' problems limit fantasy production

Fantasy owners generally don't care who calls the plays for NFL teams, whether it's the quarterback, head coach, an assistant, a consultant or Santa Claus. Really, it doesn't matter to 99 percent of us. We own Clinton Portis and we simply assume -- or hope, in this case -- he will get the ball enough to be productive. Same with Santana Moss and Chris Cooley. We know the Washington Redskins aren't like the Indianapolis Colts, a team that generally scores so much we can't go wrong, but these three players are important to fantasy owners as well. The fact coach Jim Zorn was stripped of play-calling duties Monday for a guy who was calling Bingo games a few weeks ago just doesn't matter in fantasy football ... unless a moribund offense suddenly becomes special.
